This software estimates styrene emissions from the manufacture of fiber-reinforced plastics/composite (FRP/C) products. In using the model, the user first chooses the appropriate process: gel coating, resin sprayup, hand layup, etc. Choosing a process will cause the 'baseline' input values for that process to be displayed. Then the 'new values' that apply to the user's plant are entered. After all the parameters appropriate to the fabrication process have been added, the values for 'Overall modification factor' and 'Calculated emission (percent AS)' will be displayed. Results can be printed or saved.
